There is a stage rally in Houghton you guys should look into. Requires no cage.

Would be fun.

that's no stage rally..

it's a TSD rally (get to the end at the right time, right average speed, following the route)

no one lets people do stage rallys sans cage... if you can flip a car at a RallyX you can sure as hell flip one on a stage rally.

Symantics. I know its not a Rally America event, I've read the details as I've thought about doing it. No shit its not a full on rally.

TSD's may be the most boring motorsport event known to man. I did one once with a buddy we still managed to get first but its ridiculously boring. might as well take a drive through the backwoods on your own. then you can go wahtever speed you want

Was it one up there Klod? The only thing that makes me think this one would be better is that maintaining 35mph average on twisty unplowed logging roads, could be a bit more exciting...

Also this, which Jalopnik claims are based on actual photos, but they didn't want to release the photos, and have ppl lose their jobs.

From that angle it looks pretty nifty. I like the more hatch like back half. Looking at it directly from the back though reminds me too much of the camero with the square lights. imo needs to keep signature round tails

Timmay,

what do you think of the idea of buying a R/C car (a good hobby shop level one) and then modeling up the suspension in say solidworks and then scaling it up?

from what I remember from my days of R/C cars the geometry on most of them was pretty good and the parts are very simple.....once you have the parts in solidworks it'd be easy to modify length/design/scale to use on a locost but you'd have all your pick-up points and such already designed for you..

could be a good/cheap way to get the suspension laid out and a rolling chassis should only be $45-75
